The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200608-14
(DUMB: Heap buffer overflow)
Luigi Auriemma found a heap-based buffer overflow in the
it_read_envelope function which reads the envelope values for volume,
pan and pitch of the instruments referenced in a '.it' (Impulse
Tracker) file with a large number of nodes.
By enticing a user to load a malicious '.it' (Impulse Tracker) file, an
attacker may execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running
the application that uses a vulnerable DUMB library.
There is no known workaround at this time.
